In addition to the impact OVI /DUI and criminal convictions can have on our clients’ lives and careers, in some circumstances traffic convictions can have just as great an impact. The Columbus Criminal Defense team takes defending traffic cases just as seriously as any OVI /DUI or criminal case.
Please review a few examples of recent traffic cases the Columbus Criminal Defense team has represented clients on. If you are charged with a traffic violation and are concerned with the impact it could have on your insurance, record or employment, please feel free to contact us.
- Our client was charged with a fourth degree misdemeanor offense for speeding. He was in excess of twenty miles per hour over the speed limit and this was his third violation in less than 12 months. He was facing up to 30 days in jail and a potential license suspension. We were able to negotiate a no point moving violation.
- A Commercial Driver (CDL) was charged with speeding in a construction zone. A conviction could have meant his employment with his company would be terminated. Attorney Chase Mallory was able to negotiate a dismissal of his ticket in exchange for the payment of court costs. This result likely saved our client’s career.
- Our client was charged with driving under a twelve point suspension; an offense that carries a mandatory minimum of three consecutive days in jail. After setting the matter for jury trial, we negotiated a dismissal of the driving under suspension in exchange for a plea to a minor speeding violation. Our client avoided the mandatory jail time.
- Having no prior traffic violations in a substantial number of years our firm was retained in effort to defend a speeding ticket that would be a permanent scar on an otherwise clean traffic record. We successfully negotiated a dismissal in exchange for the payment of court costs and a short online traffic safety class. Our client’s record was kept clean.
